Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana / Tex-Mex / indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins recorded with Iron & Wine has reached the Billboard 200 album charts. Their musical style is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi / conjunto / cumbia / Tejano music and also the Southwestern United States country music as well as '50s-'60s jazz and '90s-'00s post-rock, and they have been described by some as "desert noir" or indie rock. The band is named for the border town of Calexico, California. more »

They say the king of birds
And the queen of hearts
Wore each other's keys
Before they called the wedding off
And all the feathers rained down
And the town fell asleep

Pulling on the poems
For the midnight sun
Pulling on the poems
For the midnight sun

Yeah, she shook the ground
With every breath
Tossed his troubles aside
Made a shrine of every mess
Well, a woman appeared
With a guillotine smile

She handed him a rose
Then he turned to stone
She handed him a rose
Then he turned to stone

Then they laid him in the creek
Where the river ran dry
To the mouth of wisdom
And the end of doubt
Then the woman reappeared
With a blank spread smile

Took him by the rose
Then he turned to stone
Yeah, she handed him a rose
Left him all alone

Well, they lifted the stone
And they mapped the stars
Brought back the keys
And unlocked their hearts
And the birds returned
With songs in their eyes

With maps to the world
Never seen
With maps to the world
Never seen
